After contemplating the beauty of the Caravans in La Laguna, Joe and I headed to Batu Bolong Beach, crossing Berawa Beach (two of the Canggu beaches)
For me this is not a pretty area in term of beautiful views. The beaches lack of personality and charm, however, it’s an ideal place for surfing.
This area is located in South of Bali, facing the Indian Ocean. I have no idea about surfing, but from what people have explained to me, when the wind blows from the southeast it creates powerful waves which are very good for this sport.
Surfing is on my to-do list! I’ve never tried it before and I can’t wait to have my first experience, however that wasn’t the right day because I was wearing a tiny bikini that I’m sure I would have been naked right after the first wave…
So while Joe was playing in the waves, I made a new friend, Yulia, She sells coconuts and other beverages. She has the purest and honest smile in the world. If someday you come here, go to her stand, drink a rich coconut and say hi to her for me please! I’m sure you’ll enjoy talking to her!
After a while I went to the shore to do some yoga. I love practicing on the beach. I feel a very intense connection with the nature. I adore the feeling of heat that the sun leaves on my muscles , I love to feel the fresh air of the sea breeze flowing into my lungs , I like the feeling of cool water splashing on my skin… my mind is completely relaxed and my breath synchronizes with the movement of my body. It is a wonderful explosion of sensations!
At the end of my session I realized that Joe had already come back from surfing.
We both were thirsty, so we went to drink more coconuts from Yulia’s stand and we talked to her about yoga. She explained to us that she does Pranic Healing Yoga every day. I had never heard of this type of yoga before, so I added to my ‘ to-do list ‘. One more thing!! haha
After that I lay on the shore and I apply one of the few beauty tips that I practice: skin exfoliation with natural sand. I give a massage on my legs drawing small circles to stimulate the circulation of blood. It feels so good!
After another dip in the water, I lay on on the shore, feeling the waves dancing over my body…
For me this is happiness! Simple and unique moments that life has to offer to us!
This kind of memories remain the light in my heart, even in the darkest days… I just recreate them in my mind and instantly, a smile is drawn on my face!
Life is beautiful!!
Love and gratitude
